  • Position(s): Several
  • Applications closing Date: June 30, 2022
  • Vacancy Type: Permanent/Temporary.
  • Company Name: HiiL Innovation Hub

The programme is catered to startups in the incubation stage, where there is a Minimal Viable Product or Service, but no traction and runs for a period of 6 weeks. Focused on delivering high-quality action learning, the programme focuses on business modelling, storytelling, pitching and justice design thinking.

During the incubation programme, the startups will work on getting their product into the hands of users as fast as possible, aggressively and consistently obtain their feedback, and refine the MVP accordingly. This includes getting enough users and running tests on them.

Benefits

The Justice Entrepreneurship School  offers a six-week-long programme that provides justice startups with:

  • A one-week residential boot camp delivered by industry specialists: business growth, team & leadership, design thinking, and much more.
  • Coaching sessions and mentorship on topics of your choice.
  • Access to HiiL’s regional network of justice leaders, legal tech organizations, and top-level researchers.
  • Certification and a learning platform for self-service.
  • Chance to win up to €1,000 at the end of the programme during the Justice Innovation Circle demo day.

Eligibility

The programme is suitable for Startups in Kenya, Rwanda and Somalia that:

  • Have a solution that meets the needs of those with unmet justice needs who struggle to access effective, easy-to-understand, affordable, and accessible means to prevent or resolve their justice problems.
  • Have a basic product or service, that is, an existing prototype or minimal viable problem.
  • Have no traction, that is, the product is still not in the hand of users, or it’s only in hands of a small number of early adopter users, where we still do not see enough evidence that this product or business can work.
  • Led by a team of 2 or 3 committed and passionate co-founders who share a drive for justice and impact.
